  • 1.  How to make Summary portlet bigger

    I'm trying to use a portlet on VM summary view and the content of my portlet is bigger but the portlet does not resize and instead a vertical scroll bar is displayed in the portlet which scrolls the content. Is there any way to specify portlet size for example in plugin.xml or anywhere else or force it somehow to update its size so that the content is not scrolled ? I'm not trying to make it wider - I see that's fixed but I need to make it longer like some of the platform portlets that are already on the VM summary view.

    This is a known issue we have to fix in the HTML Client.

    Do we know if this issue has been fixed in HTML client? I am using the 6.5U1 SDK and I am still seeing this issue.

    Hi,

     

    You can increase the height of a portlet by defining a ratio between the width and the height of a portlet in the plugin.xm such as:

    <size>

        <width>1</width>

        <height>2</height>

     </size>

     

    This should be available from vSphere HTML Client 6.5U2.

    You can check the documentation for local plugins here: https://code.vmware.com/web/sdk/6.7/client

     

    Best Regards,
